Synopsis

Synopsis

In the #1 New York Times bestselling novel Wonder, readers were introduced to memorable English teacher Mr. Browne and his love of precepts. Simply put, precepts are principles to live by, and Mr. Browne has compiled 365 of them—one for each day of the year—drawn from popular songs to children’s books to inscriptions on Egyptian tombstones to fortune cookies. His selections celebrate kindness, hopefulness, the goodness of human beings, the strength of people’s hearts, and the power of people’s wills. Interspersed with the precepts are letters and emails from characters who appeared in Wonder. Readers hear from Summer, Jack, Charlotte, Julian, and Amos.
 
There’s something for everyone here, with words of wisdom from such noteworthy people as Anne Frank, Martin Luther King Jr., Confucius, Goethe, Sappho—and over 100 readers of Wonder who sent R. J. Palacio their own precepts.

About R. J. Palacio

R. J. Palacio - 365 Days of Wonder: Mr. Browne's Book of Precepts
R. J. PALACIO lives in NYC with her husband, two sons, and two dogs. For more than twenty years, she was an art director and graphic designer, designing book jackets for other people while waiting for the perfect time in her life to start writing her own novel. But one day several years ago, a chance encounter with an extraordinary child in front of an ice cream store made R. J. realize that the perfect time to write that novel had finally come. Wonder is her first novel. She did not design the cover, but she sure does love it.



Mientras R.J. Palacio se dedicaba a diseñar preciosas cubiertas para cientos de autores, soñaba con escribir algún día una novela. Sin embargo, le parecía que nunca llegaba el momento hasta que se dio cuenta de que lo único que tenía que hacer era empezar a escribir. La lección de August es su primera novela y, después de los elogios unánimes que ha despertado en todo el mundo, seguro que no será la última.
